The South Pennines local distinctiveness project, managed by rural regeneration company Pennine Prospects, is holding a marketing meeting to look at what makes Saddleworth special and different.
“What are the most important aspects of the area? Which bits should we be trying to promote? What does Saddleworth offer that’s different?” asked Rebecca Yorke, project coordinator. To find the answers to these questions local businesses are being invited to an event at Saddleworth Museum, Uppermill at 10.30am on Monday, April 30.
This is just the first stage in the South Pennine LEADER-funded project which is designed to benefit tourism, hospitality and creative businesses across the area. All attendees will receive a free copy of the Local Distinctiveness Handbook, which is packed full of ideas for local business marketing.
There’s no charge for the workshop, but those interested in coming along are asked to register at www.southpennines.co.uk/news-and-events.html Regular updates will also be posted at www.facebook.com/southpennines or tweeted, @southpennines.
